3 bedroom holiday villa in Sicily, Italy, with private pool
January 2020

I for one was sceptical (as always) about the villa and the surroundings, so we had a bet that if it lived up to my expectations I would be the one placing the review. And so I am here writing as promised because in one word WOW!!! I had a blast going out to bars ( jugga jugga jugga), eating REAL pizza to my hearts content, going on nature hikes and best of all....being able to return to a cozy villa with its modern mix and traditional setting to relax. The pool?....I have nothing more to say than.....Tha Bomb!

January 2020

Planned as a couples retreat for 7 couples, we had a host of activities on ours. And yes we were able to do just so. The villa was beautiful and clean, just as the pictures show. We hired a car and were able to visit the neighboring villages. The jacuzzi was a hit right away to say the least. We will be recommending this villa to other friends and family.

4 bedroom Umbria holiday villa rental with private pool
January 2020

Vanwege de vorige review hebben we voor deze familie villa gekozen. Verbazingwekkend mooie villa, met alles erop en eraan. De buitenruimte biedt een zekere sfeer van privacy en gezelligheid. Met zo een grote familie hier aanwezig, kon onze vakantie niet meer stuk. Het interieur en het meubilair bieden een comfortabel gevoel. Italie heeft ruime keuze aan wijnsoorten, olijven en lekker eten. Het land heeft iets magisch dat velen jaarlijks doet terugkeren. Van de agent van de villa hebben wij een super beste behandeling mogen genieten, een goed verzorgd geheel. Deze villa bevelen wij u gaarne aan.

In the heart of Italy, our villas in Umbria are perfect for exploring the untouched Italian countryside and enjoying traditional Italian food and wine. Alternatively, staying in one of our Tuscany villas will allow you to visit the historical jewels of Pisa and immerse yourself in the Renaissance culture of Florence and its world-famous cathedral. Beach holidays in Italy are relaxing as well as stylish and the best sun-kissed sands in mainland Italy can be found on the shores of Puglia. So, whether you want to wander through the quintessential streets of Sorrento, dine alfresco on the signature fresh seafood of Sicily, swim in the piercing turquoise waters of Sardinia, or take a romantic gondola ride in Venice, our luxury villas with private pools give you the perfect base from which to enjoy it all.

From the untouched beauty of the Amalfi Coast, to the exquisite Renaissance art and architecture of Florence, Italy is a truly one-of-a-kind holiday. This beautiful boot-shaped country that lies in-between Spain and Greece is overflowing with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, abundant in glorious fine sand beaches and loved for its world-class cuisine.

Where to go in Italy

Sardinia is a Mediterranean island of natural beauty, home to 2000km of coast, where you'll find some of the finest sandy beaches. Its rugged cliff landscape is a paradise for hikers. Make sure to visit the medieval city of Alghero! It's the second largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily. Home to stunning white sand beaches and coves, bordered by vast mountains and mysterious Bronze Age ruins, dive into the piercing blue sea and enjoy a traditional Italian coastal escape. Discover the medieval village of Alghero, with its Catalan and Gothic architecture and don't leave without visiting the 13th century palaces of Cagliari, the capital city.

Sicily

Ruled over by magnificent Mount Etna, Sicily is an island of traditional charms and ancient civilisations. Explore the vast mountains, relax on the stunning coast, wander Palermo’s markets and enjoy its famous seafood.

Tuscany

Enjoy the ultimate Italian experience in one of the country’s most beautiful regions. Think signature cuisine, world-famous wines, Renaissance art and inspiring history. From its cultural capital, Florence, where all roads lead, to the natural beauty of Sienna, Tuscany offers incredible art and architecture, a sweeping landscape of mountains, olive groves and vineyards, and an absolutely breathtaking countryside just waiting to be explored. Discover the masterpieces of Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Pitti, Duomo and Florence Cathedral with its exquisite Renaissance dome. Of course a trip to Tuscany wouldn't be complete without seeing the famous tower of Pisa.

Venice

Popular for romantic escapes, the canals of Venice are unlike anywhere else in the world. The best way to enjoy this city built on water is to take an iconic gondola ride and enjoy the sights with a glass of signature prosecco.

Amalfi Coast

At the foot of the Lattari Mountains, the Amalfi Coast in Campania boasts some of the most stunning views in Italy. From the colourful fishing villages to the picturesque lemon groves, get lost in a paradise of natural beauty. The stunning 50km stretch of coastline is a paradise of pretty little beaches and coves, while the coastal road connecting Salerno and Sorrento is filled with the scent of lemons and orange blossom. Discover a landscape dotted with colourful fishing villages and vineyards, while the lively port of Vernazza is the perfect place to watch the sun set. To make the most of this beautiful region, take a luxury private boat tour, or hike the ancient pathways, scattered with historic hermitages, grazing goats and wildflowers.

Florence

From the inconic Duomo to the breathtaking Uffizi Gallery, cultural Florence is home to some of the world's most famous works of art and architecture. Often cited as the most beautiful city in Italy, it is a true Tuscan gem.

Apulia

The heel of Italy's boot, Apulia is the 'Florence of the South', scattered with traditional whitewashed villages, crystalline water coves and bordered with chalky cliffs. Enjoy a low-key break in this charming southern region.
